    Enter the password that accompanies your Email Address Remember me Log in Request new password The Oval Day Three The crowd at The Oval likes its cricket A Test in south London is not a social occasion like Lord s on the other side of the Thames Beer not wine is the drink of choice The slow handclap started after tea Each scoring shot was received with heavily ironical applause They knew what England s batsmen were doing and they knew why but they saw no reason to applaud it England were trying to salvage the game Their batsmen were treading very cautiously toward a score of 293 that would save the follow on Risk was not an option The scoring rate was between 2 1 and 2 2 runs an over In Australia s first innings it was 3 8 It was not pretty but it has been effective so far In a day in which 98 3 overs were bowled England scored only 215 runs to make the total up to 247 they were 32 for 0 overnight The other side of the coin is that they lost only four wickets They require 46 more runs to make Australia bat again and they may get some assistance from the weather Heavy storms are forecast for Day Four Cricket followers with long memories will recall Ashes Tests in the 1960s when Bill Lawry seemed to bat forever and batsmen scoring 300 was not uncommon The motive then was that both sides were afraid of losing England had begun this Test with cocky talk of taking the series by 4 to 0 Not any longer They would be happy with a draw but they are afraid of losing Australian players and commentators have complained all summer that the English have deliberately prepared slow dry pitches And so they have but they have been of less help to England s bowlers than the perpetrators had intended and they have curbed attacking batsmanship The slow pitch at The Oval has been no help at all The ball was coming through so slowly that Kevin Pietersen was able to change his mind after the ball had been bowled When he initially intended to come onto the front foot he had enough time to transfer his weight and work the ball to leg off the back foot for a single Most of the scoring shots were singles Pietersen s innings was out of character except for the brief episode when the umpires had to intervene to warn him and Michael Clarke to stop exchanging insults He scored 50 but it took him 133 balls before his concentration lapsed he jabbed at a ball from Mitchell Starc outside the off stump and the ball flew off the bottom edge to first slip where Shane Watson took the catch At that stage England were 217 for 4 and Chris Woakes one of the debutants was batting above his station at No6 Woakes hung around for the

  • ASHES: Australia sets the stage for next meeting | Business Spectator
    to build on the second hundred of the innings Smith was 138 not out at the declaration his first century in his 11th Test Darren Lehmann who thinks of this final same in the series not as salvage operation to prevent an England clean sweep but as a prelude to the next series in the coming Australian summer Evidently he would have liked what he saw on a rain affected second day at The Oval For the first time in the series an Australian batting order was taking shape that looked as if it could become permanent Australia s batsmen looked capable of taking the fight to England when they meet again in Brisbane The bowlers have already done so although they were not able to break through in 17 3 overs before the umpires decided the light was not fit for purpose However England are still 460 runs in arrears Steven Smith has surely secured the No5 spot For Michael Clarke to reclaim it would mean recalling one of the batsmen who have failed to make a case for themselves in England Shane Watson fitted in comfortably at No3 with his spectacular 176 on Day One Yet the Smith is in the team as an afterthought called up from the A team in June when Clarke s back was a cause for concern Smith had scored 89 in Australia s big first innings at Old Trafford before giving his wicket away with a thoughtless swipe There was a 50 at Trent Bridge but the rest of his performances were distinctly unimpressive Judged by the first ball he received here he was out of form but in luck He slashed wildly at a delivery from James Anderson and could easily have got an edge He gave a chance when he was 49 and played and missed fairly often but he knuckled down powerfully hit the bad balls and played himself back into form On Day Two he proceeded serenely to his hundred This he reached memorably with the straight six off Jonathan Trott into the stand at the Vauxhall End He got a paternal hug from Brad Haddin and kissed the crest on his helmet before raising his arms to colleagues and the crowd Smith is a baby faced 24 year old from Sydney who started his Test career as a cover for the spinner Nathan Hauritz He is a leggie himself with a decent googly he took three English wickets at Lord s but as an all rounder he improved sufficiently to regain his Tests place in India earlier this year as a batsman He scored 92 in India his previous top Test score and there was some surprise when he was initially left out of the test squad Towards the end of the Australian innings where England reverted to the ultimate defence of posting eight men on the boundary Smith demonstrated his enthusiasm for running between the wickets by turning easy singles into hard run twos James Faulkner

  • ASHES: Watson's huge ton lifts Australia's spirits | Business Spectator
    as it was after the first day at Old Trafford where it built a platform for a remarkable victory that was washed away in Manchester s wet weather This was another rewarding day It started well when Michael Clarke won the toss on a sunny morning when the wicket was easy and looked more promising when England s selectors astonished everyone perhaps even themselves Two uncapped bowlers were chosen in a five man attack It was a risky decision that did not come off Watson feasted off both of them At the start of the series Watson had laid claim to open the innings Darren Lehmann in one of his first decisions as coach let him have his way After managing on 146 runs in the first three Tests Watson was moved down the order to number six where he scored a useful 68 But Lehmann s real problem was at number three where all his selections had misfired Usman Khawaja was to go Watson was the only alternative He had come in in the sixth over when David Warner edged a seaming ball from James Anderson to Matt Prior and he imposed himself right away Unusually his bat was straight he drove cleanly in front of the wicket and opened the face to glide the ball to third man His default expression is unsmiling but it certainly looked as if he was enjoying himself Only once did he repeat the fatal error of earlier innings by playing across the ball and being given lbw An appeal for lbw was rejected by the umpire England thinking the ball might have gone down leg side decided not review the decision In fact Hawk eye showed the ball clipping the leg stump He would not have been given lbw because there were insufficient grounds for reversing the umpire s decision Clearly Watson was in form and in luck His partnership with Chris Rogers prospered when England s debutantes were introduced to Test cricket and found themselves victims of an experimental attack that sacrificed a batsman Jonny Bairstow for Simon Kerrigan a left arm spinner from Lancashire and replaced the injured Tim Bresnan with Chris Woakes Kerrigan takes three diffident steps to the crease and the most striking thing about his bowling is a set of inviting full tosses and dreadful short deliveries Presumably he was experiencing a bad attack of stage fright He will not wish to remember the day but he won t be able to forget it Between them they conceded 108 of Australia s 307 runs in only 23 overs Watson scored 80 of the first 100 runs he put on with Rogers who had been playing circumspectly When he was out before lunch after putting on 107 with Watson he had scored only 23 having been most helpful just by being there Watson slowed down in his own nervous 90s and survived a fearsome blow to the head just below his left ear that felled him when he
